About Jonas Leopold Brandeis

Brandeis department store was a fixture in downtown Omaha during all those years, till it closed in the 1980's. Every child born in the area before the late 1970's remembers the Brandeis window displays at Christmas. The building is still there, filled with luxury condominiums now. The Brandeis cafeteria is a great place to eat lunch, if you're ever downtown. Brandeis descendants still live in Omaha, most notably Alan Baer.
